Last week was a stellar week on the bike. In large part it had to do with the beautiful warm sun and the fact that Scott and I managed 4 rides together. Three of the rides were back to back to back. BEST part was that we did not argue one single time. :))
Saturday’s ride topped off the perfect week with climbing, and climbing, and more climbing. We gathered with a large group Saturday morning and all set out to do tackle different goals and routes. I suckered/talked Scott into doing repeats on this one stretch of road before heading up to the Bakery and back down. This day was meant for climbing.

Sunday I wrapped it up with a 5 mile run. I had intended to stay in my low end zone 3 but I did not do so well with this. Still I felt an even effort for the run and soaked up the beautiful weather we had.

TRI training begins NEXT WEEK. I realized this just yesterday. I do have one small problem….. no pool. Yesterday I checked out a few hopeful options to only come to the conclusion that no Sports Clubs or YMCA’s offer swim passes. They want memberships. I wonder if I can turn laps in my bath tub?…lol. So on tap is a Sprint Tri in June and a Half Iron at the end of August. While I figure out the swim part I will dive into the bike /run combo’s beginning next week.
